    When you say the denim will eventually stretch an inch in the waist, is that in addition to the stretching that will happen when you wear them post soak? In other words, will a tagged 33 stretch out to 34" or 35"?

    are you talking about regulars or overdye?

    Regulars. I would have to start turning tricks to justify buying such a pricey pair of black denim, motherfucking amazing as they look.

    you may want to wait for kiya's input, but i believe the 33 measures 34 raw, will shrink to 33 when washed, and then back out to 34ish.

    i got the overdyes because i have no self control or sense of restraint.

    and there's no math involved.

    Yeah, my math shortcomings don't help.

    I usually take a 33 in jeans, but that's going TTS. They're a bit snug at first, but then get much more comfortable with wear.

    This is a true story.

    That's a helpful pic of the indigo, Lando. How would you compare the darkness of them to those Flathead's you're wearing?

    alright, so USPS just dropped my indigos off and I've got em on right now... Hands down, these are my favorite fit out of all the jeans I have. These are definitely going to be my daily-drivers for a long while. Anyways, from my experience with IH634s, I remember I was barely able to get the top button snapped the first time I wore them. These, on the other hand, are feeling pretty comfortable around the waist, not too snug, not too loose, just right. I'm afraid that these will stretch like my 634s, and I will have to wear a belt with the IH07's. Also, the thighs on the 634s stretched a good amount, as well. Should I size down to a 30, even though TTS is 31?

    The denim on the SEXIH07 has nothing in common with IH's regular 21oz denim, it doesn't stretch nearly as much.

    Just got home and got a package from USPS also, they are my bk's

    Will update post with fit pics and thoughts in a little bit

    Like the fit alot minus below the knees, I have smaller calves and ankles so they look very roomy down there.

    The hem measurements are what halted me from really considering these. I would take a 34 in these, which means a pretty hearty hem. If these were more in line with the post-soak indigo versions, on the other hand...

    They aren't "way too big", in fact they are quite tight in the waist right now but should stretch out to fit fine. My waist measures 32 and these are a sz 31, which measures 31" so after a bit of wear they should fit good in the waist.

    The top block fits good and im happy with that fit, the knees and below though are a different story.

    I am taking them to get hemmed tomorrow and i'll see how they fit after, might get them taken in maybe 0.5" from the knee and down

    You guys sometimes have the same issues as Sufu does.
    That jean looks great on him, just because it's not super tapered it's not "too big".
    They just need to be hemmed.
